Sorry if this was already covered in the game thread yesterday, but I didn't see much discussion on this and I was wondering how it has gotten such little coverage.
I'm wondering how the hell Gholston was cleared to return to the game yesterday after having the "wind knocked out of him?"
The replay sure looked like to me like (? Isiah Lewish I think) had helmet to helmet contact with Gholston, snapping Gholston's head back. Then Gholston laid ABSOLUTELY MOTIONLESS for a good 30 seconds. Then he gets up, and has this glazed look in his eyes on the sidelines like "WTF just happened to me?"
Then it gets brushed off as him having the wind knocked out, and nobody makes a peep again.
Now I'm no doctor, but I wasn't aware that being smashed in the head and having your neck snap back (with no contact to your chest) knocks the wind out of you. I also wasn't aware that not being able to catch your breath leaves you motionless/face down for a good 30 seconds. I've had the wind knocked out of me--I remember rolling around the ground panicking that I was going to die. Laying still was the LAST thing you do in that situation.
That dude was hit in the head and rendered unconscious. There are no "tests" to clear a concussion; once you are (pretty obviously) knocked unconscious, you have a consussion--end of story. Whatever crackpot MSU "doctor" cleared him to play shouild lose his medical license.
